Hillary the Moron

Gun rights groups have already begun to sound alarms over a Hillary Clinton presidency and its implications for access to firearms. But the Democratic frontrunner reminded voters on Friday that she had been here before, referring to the former Clinton White House.

“We took them on in the ’90s. We’re gonna take them on again,” she said.
Maybe she's forgotten how that worked out for her husband's administration. A brief recap: President Clinton got the Brady Bill through Congress in 1993. In 1993, both houses of Congress were controlled by the Democrats. The Democrats had controlled the House for 40 years. They had controlled one or both houses of Congress, with the exception of `47-`49 and `53-`55, since FDR was first elected.

That all ended in 1995 and the Brady Bill was a significant component of the loss of Congress to the GOP. Bill Clinton admitted as much (though he sought to blame the favorite boogeyman of the gun-control crowd for that).

Maybe so, but just maybe twenty years have changed things a little bit...
